Hunter Green in the Summer

I’m not sure why, but I usually associate hunter green with Fall clothing, and maybe even Winter. Certainly not for when it’s hot out. But one thing I’ve noticed is that it’s actually a really great year round color (and I’m clearly not the only one).

Here I’ve put together a pretty casual summery look, anchored by some cut off white denim and Venetian loafers. A softly constructed light blue striped shirt that rumples in the heat of a summer day is a perfect complement for the half-lined 3 patch pocket jacket. A knit or grenadine tie would be perfect, but for those of us of lesser means The Tie Bar’s ‘grenafaux’ gets the job done at $15.

Jacket: Michael Bastian for Barneys New York, $200 @ Barneys Outlet

Shirt: Solosso MTM, courtesy of Solosso 

Tie: Hunter Green ‘Grenafaux,’ $15 @ The Tie Bar 

Jeans: White Jeans from Pac Sun, $20

Shoes: Allen Edmonds ‘Castine’ Venetian Loafers, thrifted $17
